The vegetation profiles represent a generalised picture of the landscape. Each profile presents a typical landscape sequence. For each landform the following information is listed:
- a schematic drawing showing the vegetation structure;
- the main Ecological Vegetation Classes (EVCs) associated with it;
- a brief description of the vegetation;
- a brief description of the associated geology and soils;
- one or two location examples where intact native vegetation can be observed (if known);
- a link to a list of plant species grouped into trees, shrubs and groundcovers that are local to the area, suited to similar sites and can be used as a guide for planting projects.
It should be noted that the landforms presented may occur in different sequences in some areas. The profiles have been compiled to represent typical sequences, but these may not be the only ones.
To assist you to identify the appropriate vegetation profile and species list, Understanding Your Planting Profile , is suggested as a first step.
Use the profile name and descriptions to determine the ones most suited to your site. Click on the landform name to view the species list.
The vegetation in the Strathbogie Ranges revegetation zone has been divided into five profiles containing different vegetation types.

||Alluvial, soils sandy clay loam.
||Floodplain Riparian Woodland
||Tall River Red Gum woodland along the regularly flooding terraces of large, slow moving rivers.
||Very few intact sections of this vegetation type remain. Would occur along the Broken Creek and the lower reaches of Hollands and Ryans Creeks.
